Minor Camogie

MINOR CAMOIGE 2020——— we remained in ROINN A and we had expectations for the class of Minor 2020. The challenge to be competitive was made more difficult for all due to COVID 19. However, we had a bunch of girls who had shown great character over the past few years (U16 Roinn A Champions 2018) so we had expectations of ourselves. One of keys to success was staying injury free so losing Kate McCluskey was a cruel blow to this group. This injury on top of others leading up to the Semi Final v Dicksboro obviously became too much on the day and we failed to meet our expectations. That was a pity but this group have a huge amount to look forward to as they develop their camogie careers. Read more
